Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: At the very end of Mokuleia where the road dead-ends is Kaena Point State Park with its secluded sandy coves and huge wide-open spaces. The hiking trail follows a deeply rutted unpaved Jeep road with dozens of small seaward paths branching off to the ocean’s edge. If you opt to hike the full round-trip trek from Kaena Point to Yokohama Bay on the Leeward Coast, you’ll need roughly three hours, ample stamina, plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, body cover and your camera.

Ka'ena Point is one of the not to miss destinations on Oahu. It is beautiful and breathtaking. Bring a fully charged camera for this destination.

Great scenic hike along the shoreline. Make sure to bring plenty of water as there is none available along the way. The hike is well worth it. Once you reach the point you may see monk seals, whales, and albatross. Very secluded at the point with beautiful views. When parking make sure all valuables are with you. As others have said break ins can be common.

This is a 7 mile round trip hike over a relatively flat but uneven dirt/muddy road. My 5 year old grandson was able to make the roundtrip. Be sure to wear suitable shoes. Be prepared, as there are no restrooms or other facilities. Once you reach the point, you are often able to see albatross, monk seals and whales.

While on the North Shore we drove out towards the point and the end of the road...very nice drive out there with a small airport along the way that had Parachuting and gliders...we got to the end of the road and parked and then you can hike out the the poing and actually around the point in about 2 hours I was told...we walked a ways and explored the shore and the waves were huge the day we were there, one of the reasons wewere up on the North shore was to see the big swells coming in and it was a big day! Very enjoyable.

Fantastic views, fun little coves, great tide pools and learned alot about Laysan Albatross. Great spot if yer out for a run but still accessible enough for small kids.
